Discovering Baby-led Weaning explores BLW through the experiences of parents who have tried it.They tell us why they Decided to do it, what it has given them and their baby, and how they have coped with explaining it to others. At six months, most babies are keen to grab anything that Interests them and test it out using their mouths. They are beginning to be able to chew and they want to copy those around them. So, provided the food you eat is healthy, the most logical way to introduce your baby to solid foods is to sit them up to the table with you and let them do it themselves. This is baby-led weaning. Baby-led weaning (BLW) uses babies’ naturally-developed skills and curiosity. It allows them to make a gentle, safe transition to family food at their own pace, learning as they go. Forget purées and spoon feeding, fussy eaters and mealtime battles, and find out how to make eating together easy and fun for the whole family! Discovering Baby-led Weaning introduces us to a small group of parents who have followed BLW with their babies. They explain why they chose it, how it works - and why they wouldn’t do it any other way. The book referred to by some of the parents in this DVD is: Baby-led Weaning: Helping your baby to love good food by Gill Rapley and Tracey Murkett, published by Vermillion, November 2008.
